, during this presiden presidency. during the last presidency in 2004, when george w. bush was running for re-election, you might remember that one of the ways the republicans tried to kind of game the system for that election, particularly in states where they thought things were going to be close, was they made sure in those states republicans pushed ballot measures for that fall's election that were anti-gay rights. they calculated that anti-gay marriage sentiment was so strong that it would drive conservative voters to the polls in really high numbers and while those conservative voters were there at the polls to vote against the gay, those voters, of course, could also be reliably counted on to vote for george w. bush as well. there were 11 anti-gay ballot measures sharing the ballot with george w. bush that year in 1 1 states and the anti-gay side won in every single one of those states. george w. bush won as well in 9 of those 11 states and, of course, he won the presidency. in that election and for years before and after, every single time that marriage rights for same-sex coup

the opposite test. we had a test in the george w. bush years that went the other way. that said, we're going to cut all kinds of taxes and it's going to unleash lots of economic growth. the opposite happened. not only did it not unleash economic improgrowth, it was a decade, but of course the deficit became a big problem again. i don't think it's fair to say there are a lot of moving parts. there's always a lot of moving parts. i think the policy lesson just hasn't been learned. >> and we were given a surplus. >> tax revenue in the bush years did go up but spending went up more. that was the big problem. in the clinton years spending as a percentage of the economy actually shrunk because -- >> you're introducing -- i agree with you -- relevant moving point. the argument here is if you implement a tax increase in terms of bill clinton or a tax cut in terms of george bush can you go to a place where this has tremendously horrible or tremendously wonderful effects. the clinton years -- >> overall the empirical evidence is overwhelming that increased taxes lead to lower economic growth but other
, the jobs chart. when president george w. bush, whose father nominated this judge to the federal court by the way, who made the ruling against health care, george bush left office, junior. the private sector was shedding jobs month after month. after president obama, we now have had 41 straight months of private sector job growth. and all that progress happened despite gop obstruction and derangement. is that right? >> yeah, that certainly is true. and by the way, if you drew a line in that graph where the recovery act took place, you'd actually see that it was an inflection point that some of those numbers started to turn right around that point. in other words, not only has the economy improved as the recession recedes in the rear view mirror, but back when the president took office, he was able to get some compromise out of members of congress. he had more democrats to work with back then as well. and to apply policies that actually helped. now, just this past week, the president went to republicans and said i've got a deal for you. i'm going to give you a big cut on the corporate t

presidential campaign be like? brad bliekl blakely smiling on e right. you worked for president george w. bush. brad, how much does he have to win by in november to potentially send a national message? what do you think? >> if you look at the polls as you suggested, eric, he will win handily because he's delivered. don't forget. new jersey is a blue state. he's a republican governor in a democratic state. he has to face a democratically-controlled senate. look at what he's been able to do showing bi-partisanship, balanced budget, creating jobs, taking on the teachers union. his leadership before, during, and after superstorm sandy, so his leadership is his greatest strength. that's why you see his poll numbers so good even beyond his state, so i think he'll win handily unless something unforeseen happens in november. that sets him up to be certainly the frontrunner as we start talking even now about 20 60s d the presentation rate. >> eric: he's got a feud going on with rand paul and some in the republican party he's alienated. >> the republican party isn't homogeneous. we have a lot of differ
george bush xli resigned his membership in the nra because they got away from what they were supposed to be doing, the things we just discussed and got into this issue of conspiracy theories, as you said, black helicopters, et cetera, et cetera. that's a bad thing. if you're out there trying to educate the public on how to handle weapons safely, who not to shoot, including, you know, yourself, go get help if you need that sort of thing, that's a good thing. that's not at all what the nra stands for in the public's mind today, and if that's the case, then their image is worse than what we know, and they're hypocrites on top of that. that's the saddest part. >> let's just say that jimmy's dream of a third gun ownership organization were to come there true and there would be an advocate for the sane ordinary man on the street gun owner, what do you think realistically they could lobby for in washington. >> those people are pro-gun registries. my father was a lifetime member of the nra who resigned his membership over their response to the sandy hook shootings. he collects guns, he loves

on immigration. here is a preview of the event hosted last month at the george w. bush institute last month. these are just rough numbers, about a million new jobs in the state of texas in the last five years. roughly a million lost jobs in california. that is amazing. points is what we are seeing right now is one of the great wealth transfers in american history geographically from states like california that don't get it right, my home state of illinois that don't get it right and states that do get it right like texas. this is one reason to be bullish on the future of texas. the interesting thing is texas and california are the two highest immigration states. the tax system is a much better job of economically assimilating immigrants so they are successful here. tell a foreign more of a welfare invites immigrants and the welfare system at a much higher pace than texas does. people come to texas, in my opinion, for jobs. people come to california for welfare grade i think you see the differing economic outcomes as a result. texas is the model other states should be emulating. see that ent
believe that george bush and our supreme court expect our supreme court that it is more dangerous than al qaeda. the rulings that they have made are so naive, one that i can think of is the it's the same as businesses the same as individuals and anyone with common sense knows a corporation is not an individual. but it is now. and the idea of it being the supreme court unjustly gave then george bush the presidency, our country is divided and we will stay divided until then and when it will be corrected, i do not know but some day the justice has to come out of it. host: hope your voice improvs. om the next year the primary challenge for senator mitch mcconnell and his democratic opponent he is expected to face on led by piece mitch mcconnell pointing out failing to back the push to defund the signature health care law even if that means shutting down government. the supporters on friday with the subject line mcconnell surrenders to read on obama care and senator mitch mcconnell is accused of raising the white flag. they say he needs to start with the state-wide media campaign. he now ru

, not everybody, but a lot of people would agree that president bush, george w. bush, was obligated to strike back against al qaeda after september 11, 2001. we were attacked, and we had to respond. and i think that most people would say that president obama the very right to launch azeinab badawi race that killed osama bin laden. history and diplomacy co-exist. they interact with each other and they sometimes can complement each other. richard holbrooke, the late richard holbrooke, great american diplomat, i don't think he would have been able to secure the peace in bosnia had we not used force for six weeks to demonstrate to the bosnian-serb army that we were not going to permit them to continue to kill innocent muslims. and it was that use of force that achieved the cease-fire and drove them to the negotiating table where holbrook worked his magic and brought peace to bosnia after five years of war. so there are times when we have to rely on our military and we're fortunate, as all of you know, to have extraordinary young men and women in our military and the army and the navy and the air force
. we remember it in 2005, 2006 with george w. bush and now with obama. you're going to have partisans who call for impeachment. i think that's just where we are now as a country. >> and, you know, you'll remember during the height of the frenzy about the whole birther movement, donald trump said he had sent investigators to hawaii. he says you'll never believe what they're finding. they're finding this incredible stuff, without giving any actual information. so in terms of what they could specifically be talking about when they're talking about impeachable offenses, something that would rise to the level of high crimes, what specific instances might they be referring to? >> yeah, i mean, president obama has not committed a clear impeachable offense. like i said, this is just what you're going to get every presidency now. you know, coburn, you mentioned, cited incompetence. incompetence is not cause for impeachment. most americans don't think that the obama administration is incompetent. so this is just something that there's not, you know, a clear bill of goods against obama. there's
, bob. right now this just in to our newsroom, president george w. bush is in a texas hospital this morning as we speak after undergoing heart surgery. doctors discovered a blockage in one of mr. bush's arteries. this was during a routine checkup yesterday. this morning surgeons placed a stent to open up that blockage. reporting the surgery did go smoothly. that is good news for everyone. the former president we're told right now is in high spirits. it sounds like success on all levels. >> amazing if they can catch those things early. >> that's right. get those arteries opened up and let the flood flow. >> you need a little blood flow this morning. a chilly start to the day. >> chilly start to the day. tracking two fires. wind is certainly playing a factor. we'll check with anthony slaughter and give you the latest. 6:47. show you what we're working with in terms of winds. they're not at the strongest. as we head through out the day, they'll continue to pick up as we've seen over the past few days. a repeat performance from yesterday. the only difference is i dropped your tempe
john mccain got great press when he ran against george w. bush in the primaries. in 2008 he was on the other end of that. those things ebb and flow a little bit. i do not think in anyway those are the decisive in the way of presidential campaigns come out. i think if you talk to the romney people they felt that governor romney was unfair at different points along the way. i used to get e-mails about things that were being written or said or talked about. in general, i think those things balance out. in this campaign in particular there was never any question about vulnerabilities or weaknesses in terms of what happened with the economy. in a sense that both of them had had was they have to deal with. host: on twitter -- guest: perhaps so. especially with his medicare plan and his proposal to make a voucher out of that. i don't know it would have been significantly better had he picked someone else. host: jim messina asked to pledge that they do not rerun the 2008 campaign. jim messina explained that in their bid for reelection, both jimmy carter and george herbert walker bus

? but liberals have to remember when game of thrones is decapitated george bush, they loved it. behind closed doors they were all cheering for it. come on, this is outrageous. martha: i mean, i happen to think that, you know, that it's in bad taste all around, most of these examples that you all are bringing up. we live in a free country, you have the right to do it, it's everybody's ability to sort of judge it and say, you know, i don't think that's the right thing to do -- >> well, now, hold on, martha -- martha: go ahead, lars. >> marla, listen, chevy chase made a whole career out of portraying gerald ford as being a clumsy klutz. he mocked the president. martha: i agree with you. everybody agrees that the presidents get mocked, but it was a piece about health care was brought up, and she said, you know, he should have -- about the president, she said he should have the press office issue a release that says his reaction to finding out a rodeo clown was so what? he loves free speech including inevitably the decision -- >> yes. martha: and he also said -- the president should stand up and s
believed that george w. bush needed to go back to congress for reauthorization of the war in iraq. but as president of the united states, he intervened in libya. he had a surge in afghanistan. and he didn't go to congress for permission on either of those. so i think it's a real interpretation of how -- of how you interpret presidential power and whether he has the constitutional authority to do this on his own. but if history is any guide, i would have to say that president after president does act without congressional authorization. i mean, the last time we really did this was in 2002. and so i think that this president's going to say he's on -- he's on firm ground. what he needs to get is public opinion. >> which seems to have evolved since our polling early in may. numbers are dwindling when it comes to support. jay, gloria mentioned iraq. we heard the president make a big distinction on this. he said it would not be like iraq. take a listen. >> if, in fact, we can take limited, tailored approaches, not getting drawn into a long conflict, not a repetition of, you know, iraq,
